PostSubject: Aussie Locker in JK   Thu 22 Oct 2009, 6:33 pm

Got home last night and jumped on the front end. Pulled everything apart and stuck it back together in 3 hours and 20 minutes. I had a little trouble getting the rolling pin out. You need a long thin 3/16 punch to get that sucker out. Luckily I had a punch that spent some time on the grinder so we worked it out.
Took the Jeep out today after some crazy hard rain last night. I took it to the river area and tested the front locker. Yes! Yes! Yes! love this locker! I had the same one on my last Jeep so it feels good to get back to that kind of go anywhere traction. It will make you braver than you need to be so I better look at that winch a little harder on my mod list. My plan is to do the OR-FAB sports cage next. I wish I could do a custom cage, but I just don't have the money or time to get one installed. The OR-FAB cage is really a nice upgrade over stock.

Orange line around the diff is all that you can see. The smile it gives you on the trail is worth every penny!!!

Hmmm...I was checking out the Rock Hard Sport Cage but the ORFAB looks more solid for sure! The Rock Hard is just bolt on tubes where the ORFAB looks like an actual cage on the front...something that would help you in a roll. I didn't see it on the ORFAB website...what's the pricing looking like for this? Also, do you have to weld it all together?

Here's the Rock Hard Sport Cage in comparison:

Yes the ORFab looks better but.............

I wouldn't trust any cage that came in a box I want my crap welded in with the right triangulation.....but that's just me I have the will to live and also want my passengers to live as well.


I know for sure neither would hold up in a 50mph street roll.
